2016 NSWGFA Interclub Championship - Close is more than deep enough for some.

As the sun finishes its day low behind the Nelson Bay marina, many a soul gathers above the rocks at the weigh station. They could be local, from nearby or way farther afield and it is definitely not a sense of the macabre that draws them in.
